Pakistan government has banned two more militant outfits for their involvement in terrorist activities across the country, an official said.
The move to proscribe the Jamaat-ul-Ahrar and Lashkar-i-Jhangvi Al-Alami came after recent attacks on sectarian grounds in different parts of the country were claimed by the two groups, Dawn quoted a senior official on Friday.
A spokesman for the interior ministry confirmed the development and said that the decision was made a few days ago.
Referring to a revised list of banned organisations available on the website of the National Counter Terrorism Authority (Nacta), a senior official in Sindh’s security establishment said: “The two organisations were added to the banned outfits’ list on Nov 11.”
The updated list on Nacta website shows a total of 63 outfits that have been proscribed by the federal government.
